It seems like just yesterday we were up at Ewetopia Farms catering one of my most favourite weddings to date – Lindsey & Matt’s. Not only was the couple a ton of fun to work with, but I got to know Lindsey’s parents along the way (and their 5 dogs!) who live on one of the most beautiful country properties I have ever visited – it was THE perfect backdrop for a wedding.
The ceremony overlooked the farm’s springfed pond (complete with geese) and was followed by cocktails on the lawn outside the Murray’s turn-of-the-century red brick home. Oysters and shrimp were offered alongside our hors d’oeuvres and many guests took their time pre-dinner to wander the gardens, play an old-fashioned game of croquet, or simply mix and mingle by the glorious pool.
Lindsey & Matt chose a great menu that reflected both their tastes and the setting – grilled lamb chops, sundried pear/pecan/Stilton bites and mini burgers to start followed by rustic mac ‘n cheese, a simple carving station and a spicy Southwestern station featuring jerk chicken, blackened salmon and succotash salad. Our signature French orange cake and berries finished the meal off alongside a beautiful candy bar that the couple created themselves.
All this to say, we weren’t surprised when WeddingBells notified us Lindsey & Matt’s wedding was being featured in their 2012 Fall/Winter magazine. It was truly one of the most beautiful weddings I have had the pleasure of catering made only more special by the wonderful couple and family at the helm. Congratulations to you all!
